Ahead of Avenged Sevenfold’s Rock In Rio 2013 appearance Synyster Gates called UOL Música (Portuguese/Translated) and Jornal Extra (Portuguese/Translated) to talk about performing in Brazil and the fans, Avenged Sevenfold’s success, his response to Machine Head’s Robb Flynn’s recently “Diary Of A Frontman…” entry and more. Syn also called into Ontario’s Y108 for a quick chat with Scott Penfold about working with Mike Elizondo, “Hail To The King” and getting back to Canada.
Thorny issue in the band’s career, the criticism about the originality of their riffs doesn’t seem to bother the guitarist, who shrugs. The leader of Machine Head, Robb Flynn, posted on Facebook that “Hail To The King” is just a bunch of “covers” of Metallica, Guns ‘N Roses and Megadeath.
“I honestly have nothing to say to to him. Every band has to learn to deal with criticism during their career and it’s natural for us. I guess that’s a hell of a compliment when we’re compared to large groups, namely those who we admire that have weight and groove in music such as AC/DC, Metallica and Led Zeppelin.”
